South Korea accuses North Korea of attacking vessel in official report.
Since I live in Japan, it is not a story far from my daily life. Nobody in Far East is happy about how North Korea behaves in recent years. In order to endure the political power of Kim Jong-il by himself, how many people need to suffer from real loss and fears even inside his country. There should be smarter solutions if he can sacrifice a little bit of his power or has mercy on his people.
Power struggles in Far East get more intense since 1953. Every country in this region claim to territorial water louder than ever. Japan is not exceptional and also has to hold more diplomatic dialogs and negotiations with South Korea and China before things get worse. I hope in the next decade that arms and forces become the way to solve any problems around the area.
